There is no other zoo like the Innsbruck Alpine Zoo!
In focus: The unique fauna of the European Alpine region
A visit to the Alpine Zoo – at 750m the highest of its kind and the only themed wildlife sanctuary worldwide – is a truly unforgettable experience for children and grown-ups alike. More than 2,000 animals and 150 species can be viewed in their natural habitats, as the zoo’s enclosures, aviaries, aquariums and open-air terrariums are home to the most complete populations of animals native to the European Alpine regions. The Alpine Zoo is easily accessible by public transport – simply hop on the ‘W’ city bus leaving from Marktplatz, near the indoor market. Also the new Hungerburgbahn stops at Alpenzoo, offering a combined ticket that includes cable-car, entrance fee to the zoo and free parking at the Congress- and Citygarage.
Children and parents share the excitement of discovering the alpine animal park, where otters mesmerise visitors with their agile aquatic antics, wolves howl in sync when nearby church-bells chime, while in the barnyard no-one can resist patting the little piglets and lambs. The youngest visitors can romp to their heart’s delight in the ‘Bear’ playground – and try to reach the Geierwally eagle’s nest, perched up high on a climbing wall. A new special attraction is the re-designed ibex enclosure, where visitors can stroll freely among the majestic beasts, without any obstructing barriers.
Little ones will love the idea of celebrating their birthday at the Alpine Zoo. The package aimed at children from the age of five, includes a guided adventure tour of the zoo (also available in English), a snack, a present for the birthday child and a small souvenir for every little birthday guest. Parties can be hosted every afternoon from Monday to Saturday, advance booking is required.
The Alpine Zoo is open daily from 9am to 6pm (closing at about 5pm during winter). Special evening guided tours from June until September offer detailed insights into the lives and loves of the animals.
